Volvo’s new XC40 has been very well-received in the very popular compact SUV segment and now the automaker has confirmed earlier this year that it plans to make an all-electric version as soon as next year.
With most electric SUVs hitting the market being in bigger or more premium segment, like the Mercedes-Benz EQC and Audi e-tron quattro, this one should come at a lower price.
Unfortunately, not much is known about the vehicle just yet, but Volvo’s latest CUV platform was built from the ground up to support several types of powertrains – including an all-electric one.
– Range: 250 miles (estimate)
– Battery pack: 70 kWh (estimate)
– Price: $45,000 (not official)
– Availability: 2019
